This Week's Cravings: Thanksgiving Leftovers

Welcome to the fourth week of This Week's Cravings as we share recipes using Thanksgiving Leftovers!

I always look forward to wonderful Thanksgiving meals... turkey & ham... mashed potatoes & gravy... green bean casserole.... yum! But there is something else I look forward to -- the leftovers! Adding ham to cheesy eggs or making potato pancakes; there are many ways to make the leftovers just as tasty and exciting as the Thanksgiving meal itself.

So please join us for This Week's Cravings - We want you to share your favorite dishes using Thanksgiving leftovers!

This week I am featuring several past recipes that could easily be altered to include leftovers.

Pepper Popper Chicken Calzone.

& Pizza Stuffed Pretzels.

Use the concept & your imagination to create tasty 'leftover' meals. Stuff with shredded turkey & stuffing; or use ham & cheese. Serve with salads or leftover veggie sides.

Chicken Enchiladas.

See the enchiladas next to the yummy rice? Make the easy swap of shredded chicken for shredded turkey - nobody will notice! Then make that yummy rice too :)

Remember Jen's Cream Cheese Chicken?

I dream about this creamy, comforting dish; It's perfect for cold, winter nights. And know what? It's perfect for leftovers.

  • Melt 3-4 Tb butter in large skillet, mix in Italian dressing. Add ham cubes or shredded turkey; stir to coat. Finish dish as directed in original recipe.
  • Serve over leftover mashed potatoes.

Now, here's a run down of our little shindig and the rules:

This is your chance to share your favorite recipe each week based on our themes.
